Record Store Review - Tucson

Postby coop41 » Tue May 15, 2007 1:21 pm

Drove down to Tucson this afternoon to check out some record stores.

Two Zia Records locations - Both absolutely sucked. Based out of Phoenix and my regular source for vinyl, I couldn't have been more disappointed. No selection and thrift shop condition at both places. I only picked up 2 7" singles (Pete Shelley and Depeche Mode imports) and a 5 song EP featuring The Mighty Lemon Drops, World Party and The Bodines. Definitely Avoid![:(]

PDQ Records (on Dodge and Grant)- quite possibly the largest selection of vinyl of any store I have ever been in, arranged beautifully, easy to browse. Unbelievable selection, it was like everything I looked for they had. Prices varied wildly but almost everything was reasonable. Most records I bought were in the $3-5 range and included:

Los Illegals
Robert Seidler - Cig Sisters
Smash Palace
Horizontal Brian
New Marines
Nervus Rex
The Neats
It's Immaterial
Bongos - Beat Hotel (Sealed)
Red Wedding - Nails
and several local LP's from 80's acts that I have been searching high and low for!!!

I wish i had more time to spend there.

If you are in Tucson, make sure you leave enough time to go to PDQ Records, you won't be disappointed!!

Went to Tucson for the weekend and went to PDQ again Saturday and Sunday. If there is a better store anywhere I don't know where it is.
Tons and Tons of vinyl, and the new owners have all LP's at 50% off!!! I picked up a ton of off the wall stuff, again, stuff I don't normally see in other stores. It's a must if you ever go to Tucson (and this would be the only good reason to go there!).
